OTRR Maintained Set -- This set contains all known episodes in the best available audio condition with the most accurate dates and titles known to be in general circulation and based on current research at the time of release. Replaces OTRR Certified Accurate and OTRR Certified Complete.
OTRR Non-Maintained Set -- A collection of shows that has not gone through the OTRR Maintenance process.
Pre-2019 OTRR Definitions:
OTRR Certified Accurate -- A series that was "Certified Accurate" indicated that all the episodes were properly identified and labeled based on current information but that the series did not contain all known extant episodes.
OTRR Certified Complete -- A series that was "Certified Complete" achieved the highest level of certification available under the OTRR Certified Standards. This certification level implied that all the files in the series were "Certified Accurate" and also indicated that the series was as complete as possible and included all circulating episodes.
OTRR Non-Certified -- A collection of shows that has not gone through the OTRR Certification process.
Also, beginning in 2019, the version numbers of our OTRR releases changed format -- instead of v1.0 or v2.1, we are now using a version number that reflects the year and month the set was released. The format used is a two-digit year followed by a two-digit month. For example, "v1906" indicates a set that was released in June 2019, or "v1910" indicates a set released in October 2019.
NOTE: There are no passwords for any of our ZIP files. If you are prompted for a password, before downloading the file again, try unzipping the file into a shorter full folder path name -- for example, unzip to "C:\" instead of "C:\Documents and Settings\your_Windows_ID\some_other_folder\". Sorry, some of our releases contain long folder and file names, which sometimes manifests itself on the Windows platform as prompting for a password for the ZIP file. Or try renaming the ZIP file itself to a shorter name before unzipping.

When the OTRR uploads a series, they almost always have two separate pages for that series. One page has all the episodes, as well as bonus material, in 600-700Mb zip files, for easy downloading of the entire series. That's the page we're on now.
If you're on an OTRR zip-file page and you want to get to the page with the player, put the name of the series into the search box, and follow that with the word "OTRR". In the search results, look for the result that has the name of the series followed by the words 'Single Episodes'. That's the page you're looking for. I'll save you a search; here's the URL:
Incidentally, if you're new to the site and are wondering what OTRR (Old Time Radio Researchers) is, they're a group that assembles very good collections of old-time radio programs, finding the best quality episodes, eliminating duplicates, dating them as accurately as possible, locating bonus material, and much more, and then shares them with the otr fans here.
If you plan to listen to and save an entire OTRR series, the zip-file page is the best way to do it, so that you receive the bonus material, usually found in zip file #1. Hope this helped.
